This is a cross country ski area, and like all of them, the trails are fairly flat. However, there are about 15 to 20 miles of trails out here, and on the east end there is a pretty good continuous climb. There are 3 loops and i recommend doing them all. This is a fun ride to loosen the legs before after trying the SBT - if you are from out of town. You can camp here as well.

I had fun here. This is not some destination uber-challenge, but more of a ride to have some fun with the family. Don't be fooled though, you can climb over a 1000-ft here. You start at 8100-ft and can get to almost 9200-ft.

Trails aren't all that technical, but there are a few unofficial trails cut by skiers than can get you some fairly technical challenges.

Recommended Route:
Upper loop,

Too many to choose from.
